Rubbing to edges and corners bumped. Spine and covers creased.
It's spring in Thrush Green and the new season brings change and excitement to the village ...
When retired schoolteachers Dorothy Watson and Agnes Fogerty return to visit their many friends at Thrush Green they find the small community abuzz with gossip. The old schoolhouse has just been sold and everyone is eager to welcome the new owners, the Lesters. Alan Lester is cautiously approved, but rumours abound about his wife Margaret. Equal cause for speculation is the odd behaviour of Bertha Lovelock. And what of farmer Percy Hodge - can he really be so foolish as to comtemplate matrimony with the wayward Doreen Lilly?
These affairs and more occupy the thoughts of old frines and new in this welcome addition to Miss Read's delightful chronicles of life in Thrush Green.
